From zombie challenges to emergency kits to escape rooms- our students are now Masters of Disasters and know how to be successful and resilient during any type of emergency. Thank you to the Bend Fire department, REI, Financial Beginnings, 4-H, Ryan Siggins, Sarah Johnson, and more, for equipping our students!
